Plans

“If you follow Krishna’s instruction, you’ll always be happy. And if you create your own plans, then you’ll be unhappy. This is the whole instruction. Sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja: (BG 18.66) ‘You give up your own plans, nonsense plan. You take My plan. You’ll be happy.’ This is the whole purpose of Bhagavad-gita. You take Krishna’s plan and you’ll be happy.” ~A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

“If life doesn’t turn out exactly as you planned– don’t be surprised.  Life is the great unknown. Even though we plan and scheme and make millions of assumptions about the future, the truth is that we don’t know what can happen in the next moment, let alone the next five weeks, months or years. So don’t be surprised when things don’t go according to your ideas, just relax and remember, life isn’t personal, it’s just life. Be open to the ever changing conditions and flow with them. Don’t get stuck. The moment you feel free to respond fully and freely to life, you are already more powerful than you can know.”  ~Michael Kewley

“If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.”  ~Jewish saying
